British heavyweight Joe Joyce is reportedly set to face China’s Zhilei Zhang on April 15th.
The report comes courtesy of Boxing Scene.
Joyce halted Joseph Parker in the eleventh round in September to maintain his number one ranking with the WBO.
The 37-year-old is set for a shot at Oleksandr Usyk‘s WBO heavyweight title in the near future and will look to keep busy versus 39-year-old Zhang.
The latter suffered a contentious unanimous decision defeat to Filip Hrgovic in August on the undercard of Usyk’s rematch victory over Anthony Joshua.
